Bug description

Is there any reason why libraries with profiling information are not built on FreeBSD amd64, while being built on FreeBSD i386?

It seems to me that this is an error, as gprof is definitely available on that

I do not really understand the following logic to detect profiling

case "$arch,$system" in
i386,linux_elf) profiling='prof';;
i386,gnu) profiling='prof';;
i386,bsd_elf) profiling='prof';;
amd64,macosx) profiling='prof';;

Wouldn't be easier, clearer and less error-prone to check for a gprof
program? Or am I missing something?

Well, you might not necessarily have the profiling tools installed on your build machine, e.g. some kind of compile farm.

For the moment it seems to suffice to add amd64/freebsd to the list. I also added amd64/netbsd. Committed to 4.02.
